Technicolor pop duo Bag Raiders (Jack Glass and Chris Stracey) are returning to US soil for the second time this year, supporting UK songstress Ellie Goulding on her upcoming tour. After playing to sold-out crowds on their recent club tour, which also took in a performance at dance mecca Ultra Music Festival, and hosting an epic hometown show in the Sydney Opera House, Bag Raiders will be bringing their summer-tinged pop anthems to a live stage near you throughout July and August.
The third single off their debut self-titled album ‘Not Over’ now has a rollercoaster ride of a video, directed by Rhett Wade-Ferrell of Australian design collective Moop Jaw. It premiered at AOL Spinner and can also be viewed here.
The ‘Not Over’ remix package with cuts from Classixx, Eli Escobar and Softwar will be available soon.
Bag Raiders is out now on Modular Records, on iTunes and all other fine digital retailers.
